# Dear Accepted Author

Thank-you for participating in the HT '02 (ACM sigWeb 2002 Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia) Proceedings. This webpage will acquaint you with the submission of your paper, the required fields, how and where to submit your signed ACM copyright release form, and how and where to submit any reviewed external materials.

Please read this entire webpage. Submissions that do not conform to the ACM standards and formats will be returned to the author for corrections or alterations.

The rest of this webpage is composed of the following sections:

## Submission Deadlines and Preparation of Copy

All ACM sponsored proceedings will be included in the ACM digital library as well as prepared for printed publication. All papers for the conference must be submitted in an electronic format which conforms to ACM specifications.

There is a 10-page maximum on full articles.
There is a 2-page maximum on all short articles.

(Instructions for poster & tutorial authors are here.)

Your electronic submission is due on or before April 19, 2002.

Templates for you to prepare your article (using LaTeX, Word, or FrameMaker) are available from the ACM. You can get the templates from http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. Important details about how to use those templates are in the templates section below.

## Note To All Authors

The following sections in all of the ACM templates are mandatory sections and should be filled in properly by the authors:

Categories & Subject Descriptors:
Use the ACM Computing Classification Scheme.
General Terms:
This section is limited to the following 16 terms: Algorithms, Management, Measurement, Documentation, Performance, Design, Economics, Reliability, Experimentation, Security, Human Factors, Standardization, Languages, Theory, Legal Aspects, Verification.
Keywords:
This section is your choice of terms you would like your article to be indexed under.

## Formatting Directions

We need your original source file (.doc, .fm or .tex), so we can extract text and data to produce information and metadata for ACM's digital library.

LaTeX users may also submit high-quality PDF files (generated with pdflatex) or Postscript but still need the original source file.

FrameMaker users must submit both Postscript and original source files.

Be sure that your .ps file is formatted for American Letter (8.5×11 inches).

Submissions that do not conform to the ACM standards and formats will be returned to the author for corrections or alterations.

Authors of articles must submit a signed ACM Copyright Release form. If you cited external material (such as a QuickTime video or Flash presentation) in your submission then that material should be submitted by FTP too.

Check that you have no widowed or orphaned lines (i.e., the last line of paragraphs should not be at the top of a column or a new page). If you do then either tighten the previous column or force a line over.

Section and Sub-section heads should remain with at least two lines of body text when near the end of a page or column.

### Templates

Templates are available for the following three programs that you may use to prepare your submission for the proceedings:

1. Word;
2. LaTeX; and
3. FrameMaker.

2. #### Details for LaTeX Users

LaTeX users may submit either high-quality PDF files (generated with pdflatex), Postscript files, or both.

1. You must use the ACM's option#2--sig-release class file (from the ACM SIG proceedings templates webpage.) That class file saves money for sigWeb and automatically inserts the ACM copyright statement and conference information.
2. Insert the following three lines into your .tex document after the \begin{document} to produce the correct copyright statement and info:
• \conferenceinfo{HT'02,}{June 11-15, 2002, College Park, Maryland, USA.}
• \CopyrightYear{2002}
• \crdata{1-58113-477-0/02/0006}

For help see: http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/sigfaq.htm#a14. If you still have difficulty check with your system administrator.
4. Please include all text (including references from the .bbl file) into one complete .tex document.

We want only one file with all of your text from your submission, not a directory of files. We do not need the figures. We are not recompiling your submission, only using the one source file to extract text and data that we need to make the metadata for ACM's digital library.

5. Name your .tex and .ps (or .pdf) file using your HT paper number and the lead author's last name (for example: p456-jones.tex & p456-jones.ps).
6. Be sure to format your document for letterpaper (8.5×11 inches).
7. You need to submit to Sheridan Printing, your .tex and .ps (or .pdf) files as attachments on or before April 19, 2002

## ACM Copyright Release Form

ACM requires the original signature of the lead author on a hardcopy of the ACM Copyright Release form. The authors and publication must be filled in at the top and signed at the bottom. Be sure that your title on the form matches the title on your submission otherwise a new form will be requested. Only one form is needed and it must have the lead author's original signature. The form must be received by April 19, 2002. Send the completed form to:

Sheridan Printing Co.
Attn: Lisa Tolles-Efinger
1425 Third Avenue
Alpha, NJ 08865-4695 (USA)

Fax: +1 908 454-2554

If you print this form and send it in when your article is accepted, you do not have to send it via an express carrier -- regular post or airmail should be sufficient.

## External Material

If you cited external material (such as a QuickTime video or Flash presentation) in your submission then that material was reviewed along with the submission itself. Please submit a copy of the external material by FTP so the material may be permanently hosted at the ACM sigWeb website.

Your external material must be placed in the directory named for your submission (for example p123-smith, as above). You will not be able to change any files after they are submitted.
